This Halloween, horror is a reality as multi-channel network Collective Digital Studio (CDS) premieres a brand new horror game show, “Release The Hounds”, on CDS’s MetaCafe and BlackBoxTV on YouTube in a groundbreaking approach to bring a hit UK show to audiences worldwide.
“Release The Hounds”, produced by UK-based Gogglebox Entertainment, “features three unsuspecting contestants who enter a forest at dusk in a quest to unlock chests full of prize money. Little do they know that in order to win big, they have to face the scariest challenges ever endured on TV.
To locate the keys to the chests, contestants must enter a field of crucified scarecrows, descend beneath the floorboards in a deserted cabin, and read bedtime stories in the nursery from hell. But the ultimate challenge for them all is to out-run a pack of hounds, trained to guard the cash. If they manage to escape, the money belongs to them. And if they don’t, the horror has just begun…”
Filmed in a remote forest from dusk through the dead of night, “Release The Hounds” takes the game show concept to a frightening new level. With Show Host Reggie Yates as their only connection to the outside world, the contestants must progress through each horrific challenge by keeping their wits and working together.
The first episode of “Release The Hounds” premieres today on CDS’s Metacafe and on BlackBoxTV on YouTube, and can be previewed below!
